Okay...so I've knitted three repeats so far, and I think this is what I've come up with to make it work for me, changes in red. So just in the interest of the academic...if anyone has the time to look it over and tell me if anything looks off (ie: something I'm doing wrong from the pattern as written, thus making this version unnecessary), I'd appreciate it!

Original:

Foundation rows: co 10, k one row

row 1: k2, yo, p2 tog., k1, (2 yo , k2 tog.) 2 times, k1
row 2: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 3: k2, yo, p2 tog., k3, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, 1r
row 4: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times , k3, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 5: k2, yo, p2 tog., k5, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, k1
row 6: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times , k5, yo, p2 tog, k2
row 7: k2, yo, p2 tog., k7, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, k1
row 8: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times, k7, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 9: k2, yo, p2 tog., k14
row 10: cast of 8st., k5, yo, p2 tog., k2

My "fixes":

Foundation rows: co 10, k one row

row 1: k2, yo, p2 tog., k1, (2 yo , k2 tog.) 2 times, k1
row 2: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 3: k2, yo, p2 tog., k3, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, 1r (ie: increase one stitch on bar to right)
row 4: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times , k3, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 5: k2, yo, p2 tog., k5, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, k2 tog
row 6: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times , k4, yo, p2 tog, k2
row 7: k2, yo, p2 tog., k7, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, k1
row 8: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times, k6, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 9: k2, yo, p2 tog., k14
row 10: cast of 8st., k5, yo, p2 tog., k2

Looks like the M1R didn't solve any further pattern problems. Must be frustrating. I'm sure they'll be some very talented people here who can help you, but if not, my thinking is to drop the pattern author a line. Probably won't be necessary tho'.

P.S. Got a few more questions to do with yarn/England. Should I post them at the original posting? I'm afraid you won't catch them, and I don't want to interfere with your posting here.

Ooh, wherever you like, Jan! I'll answer if I can. (I'm about to get dressed and go to Loop, actually!) And pound to dollar right now is at about 1.40. Yay for me! Terrible for economy here tho.

And actually, it did solve the problem for those two rows. It just didn't solve the problems of the other rows! It's a leaf pattern, so it is supposed to curve. This way looks more like the picture she has on her site, though...

I think the 1r at the end of row 3 is still supposed to be k1, not make 1. Because at the end of row 3 you have YO YO, st, st, and row 4 starts with k2, k1, p1, in double YO, so that works out. And it doesn't make sense to Inc at the end of row 3, that throws off the k2, k1p1 in YO.

R 3 starts and ends with 14 sts. R 4 needs 15 sts and ends with 15 sts, but maybe there should be another YO earlier in R 3. Like, k2, yo, p2 tog.,YO k3, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, k1. That could work out better for R 4.

Oh, I'm so confused! But you're a hero, Sue! I've written Anna to see if she might be able/willing to comment and perhaps offer some corrections...
